Performance implications of OpenVMS upgrade?

» close window

The Question is:

We are considering upgrading our VAX cluster from v6.1 to v7.2.  Currently our
 cluster is comprised of on 4000-500A and one 4000-705A.  what type of
 perfomance effects will the upgrade have and is the hardware of the cluster
 sufficient for the new os vers

The Answer is :

  There is no generic answer, unfortunately.  Assuming sufficient
  physical memory and storage is available, you will see some areas
  of OpenVMS performance improve and you may see the performance of
  other areas reduced.  OpenVMS Engineering does go to lengths to
  avoid system performance degradations, and to provide improvements
  in many areas.  Without details of exactly what features -- and this
  is information that is usually only possible to determine via a local
  system benchmark -- there can be no specific nor useful answer.
